Aptly named, Who Gives A Crap makes great TP and this is the strongest, softest premium TP they make. What's better, they don't flush profits down the drain... for every roll purchased, they donate 50% of their profits to to help build toilets for those in need. And unlike other eco-brands, it's soft and comes wrapped in paper, not plastic. And in case you didn't notice, there's nothing on the market that looks as nice in your bathroom. A loo that looks good and does good.

NOTE: You CAN buy cases of TP direct from this company, however, if you want to try before you buy, or you live in a small space and can't house a big box of TP, buying from What's Good does the trick.
WHY BAMBOO? Every day, over 1 million trees are cut down to make traditional toilet paper. We’re not so keen on killing trees just to make TP, which is why these rolls are made with 100% bamboo fibers — sustainably sourced.
A lot of people don’t realize that bamboo is a grass, not a tree. It grows incredibly quick, making it a sustainable source for loo rolls. You can wipe easy knowing that you’re helping to reduce deforestation one flush at a time.
WHAT DOES IT REPLACE? Your last roll. TP from non-recycled sources. TP with added fragrance and dyes. TP that comes wrapped in plastic. TP from companies that don't give back to the greater good.
INGREDIENTS 100% bamboo — sustainably sourced.
PACKAGING Wrapped in recycled and recyclable paper, not plastic. It's pretty enough to use as wrapping paper or decoupage anyone?
SOURCING WGAC is working on a USA manufacturing facility. Yay! But in the meantime: Sourced from farmers who plant bamboo on the borders of their small family farms. It helps supplement their income and unlike industrial agriculture, it also means no vast areas of land are cleared.
We asked "Who Gives A Crap" about sourcing. They are working on a USA manufacturing system, but in the meantime, here's what they had to say:
"We're an Australian-owned company, and after a lot (and we mean A LOT) of thoughtful consideration, we’ve proudly set up our manufacturing operations in China. There’s a bit of a misconception about production in China, which we think is important address. We work closely with our producers to ensure standards and processes we’re happy with, plus we found that China offered a lot of wonderful benefits:
We can use paper wrappers and recycled cardboard boxes rather than plastic! We couldn’t find an Australian producer that would let us to this with varied designs for our wrappers.
We have access to a large pool of local, raw materials—post-consumer waste paper (which is not readily available in Australia). By using China's local materials, we avoid importing from overseas.
We can cut the cost of operations, passing on those savings to our customers. Australian toilet tissue manufacturers are few and far between, and they all have their own brands. We’d be asking one of our competitors to make our products!
For our North American launch, we’ve sea freighted containers of stock into both the east and west coast, and are distributing from there. Don’t worry, we’re not flying your toilet paper orders over from Australia!
All of these factors ensure we’re building a sustainable business model that delivers quality and environmentally responsible products at competitive prices. This allows us to focus on our greater mission: building toilets for those who need them!"
ABOUT THE COMPANY Who Gives A Crap was started in 2013 after the founders learned that 2.3 billion people across the world don't have access to a toilet. That's roughly 40% of the global population and means that around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That's almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes.
In their words, "We thought that was pretty crap." So in July 2012, Simon, Jehan and Danny launched Who Gives A Crap. They delivered their first product in March 2013 and have been growing ever since.
To date they've donated over $10,800,000 Aussie dollars (that’s the equivalent of over $7,431,048!) to charity and saved a heck of a lot of trees, water and energy. Not bad for a toilet paper company, eh?
This toilet paper is not rough at all. I used it as a decorative piece in my bathroom at first then it became an emergency back up roll lol. When you get down to the inner tube it has a website that you can visit and it has a whole bunch of random bathroom facts! Let’s not forget the hilarious pun on the packaging 🤣
Love that you included a photo! You can always buy it by the case direct from the manufacturer. We offer it to introduce our customers to better alternatives and for those who don't have the room for a case of TP. Thanks for writing in!

Best TP EVER!
Where have you been all my life, WGAC? This is thick, absorbent, soft and does not pill up or fall apart when you use it. My whole family is thrilled for the upgrade!

I give a crap
This paper is just right . And happy to think it’s a sustainable product ! And I love the cool wrapping !
Who knew TP could be so good? And WGAC donates 50% of their profits to building toilets and clean sanitation for underserved communities around the globe. Thanks so much for braving a TP review. :)

Premium Bamboo Toilet Paper
TP was too rough, not soft enough for me!
We wonder if you received a 'bum' roll, because we usually hear that customers appreciate how soft it is compared to other eco brands. Either way, we're so happy you gave it try and appreciate you shopping with us and sharing your experience.

Not worth the hype
It was very soft to the touch with your hand but it felt a little rough when using it after going to the bathroom. Also didn't seem to clean all that well. Glad I got to try one roll before smgetting a full subscription.
Hmmm... you are the first in 3.5 years to have a 'bum' experience with this TP. We're so sorry it didn't work for you. Message us directly if you'd like a refund. We really do believe this is as soft a TP you'll find in the eco space, and since they give back 50% of their profits to build toilets and sanitary stations in underserved communities and developing countries, they're one of the best. Totally understand if it didn't work for you.
